Being a Christian in today's world is very hard. But do not let that scare you, anything worthwhile is worth working for. Being a Christian can be hard but it can also be fun. That is my objective, through my own stories, stories of my friends and a lot of plagiarism (Just kidding, only a little plagiarism.), I am going to show that you can be a Christian and still have fun!

  The Kiss

The Kiss...
He had just saved her from a fire in her house, rescuing her by carrying her out of the house into her front yard, while he continued to fight the fire.

She is pregnant.

The firefighter was afraid of her at first, because he had never been around a Doberman before.

When he finally got done putting the fire out, he sat down to catch his breath and rest.
A photographer from the Charlotte, North Carolina newspaper, "The Observer," noticed this red Doberman in the distance looking at the fireman.

He saw her walking straight toward the fireman and wondered what she was going to do.

As he raised his camera, she came up to the tired man who had saved her life and the lives of her babies, and kissed him, just as the photographer snapped this Photograph.

And people say animals are dumb -
Yeah right....

Have you ever thought of what you are going to do when you get to Heaven and see Jesus for the first time? Like the Mercy Me songs says, "I Can Only Imagine." I can only imagine what I am going to do: fall at His feet, rejoice, or just simply give Him a kiss on the cheek and thank Him for saving me. Want to know how you can join me? There is a link on my header page you can go to and it will tell you how you can be saved.
God bless, Joe

You have been an inspiration to me months ago when I discovered your blog and I used your blog title for one of my threads in the forum of

I love your posts.

When I meet my Lord.
There is no vocabulary in any dictionary of any language that would be enough to describe how grateful I am for His infinite love for me.

Remember He is the breath of my life.

Excelent post!To think a mear animal can recognize the one who saved her, and yet there are so many of us humans that can not see or will not see he who died so that we would not have to!
This dog recognized her savior, do we as humans recognize ours? When that day comes, will we be in his book of life?
There will be many of us who think we are going to heven just because we are good, or know that Christ exists (on an intelectual level) But if we have not accepted him as Lird of our life, then we will have a rude awakening! Remember; even Saten knows God exists, but that is not going to save him!

What a great post! This just goes to show that God truly does move in mysterious ways, and love can come in many forms. We truly do reap what we sow, don't we! If we sow love, we will surely reap love in return!

Peace, love and doggie kisses...
